Las Californias


William Wendt (1865-1946). To Mountain Heights and Beyond, 1920. Press Release: April 18, 2019


“Las Californias,” a New Project from
J S Kingfisher.


Essentially a collection of musical impressions of states both inner and outer, J S Kingfisher’s Las Californias varies widely in mood but functions generally as ambient. Several of the pieces are well underway: Clouds’ Journey, Yerba Buena, Montaña de Amor, Abuela Viento, Blossoming of Hope, Soledad, San Benito, Oasis, Riparia, Pupfish, Black Butte… J S Kingfisher is featured on keyboards, harpejji, and vocal textures (no lyrics), and there are several guest appearances. Below is a sneak preview of a work in progress, Shasta Calling, featuring Austyn James on bass and vocals (headphones suggested.) More previews forthcoming; the entire project is slated for release on Autumnal Equinox 2019.
